that whole thing down. >> that's the senate candidate from missouri this year, congressman todd akin. one of the things lost as soon as he said what he said about legitimate rape is his democratic opponent claire mccaskill had hand selected todd akin to be her opponent before he ever made the comments about rape. claire mccaskill used campaign money to run ads that were for todd akin advertising him to republican primary voters as the true conservative in the race. that's because claire mccaskill knew before he made his rape comments that he's the kind of guy who would make comments like that. he's proved her right. remember when rand paul came out against the civil rights act and then had to take it back when running for senate? remember how bad that was for him? did you hear what todd akin just said? stay with us. that's coming up. >>> i want to thank them for their help as well. and just in case anybody watching throughout the country, they are both available. no, no, no. only kidding, only kidding. only kidding, only kidding. ariana definitely is not available but ailer is. >> st

republican senate candidate from missouri this year. this was not sent out by his opponent's campaign by the claire mccaskill campaign. it was sent out by a democratically leaning super pac. but this is obviously clearly designed to benefit her in the election. claire mccaskill is a very good campaigner. some of her ads in this election i should say, other than the talking mailer are among the best ads i've seen a democrat run anywhere. whatever you think about her politics, she's a very good campaigner. even as a very, very good campaigner it was almost impossible to imagine senator claire mccaskill being able to hold on to her senate seat this year just because she's the senator from missouri and missouri is trending more and more strongly republican. this is going to be a difficult race. right? the only reason she is not, however, just competing for this race, the only reason she's not just competitive for holding on to her seat, she's actually pretty far out ahead in her state right now. the only reason is because republicans picked a carl paladino type to run against her. the rep
